LOSA for Librarians


Librarians curate information...

...and are the guardians of our culture. 


It all started when...

"I was hired as a page at the New Hartford Public Library in 1989.  Under the guidance of the excellent staff there, I learned the value of a public library.    

Now, as part of my practice, I support the work of librarians and archivists through an "Ask the Lawyer" service to Library Councils throughout New York State, and regularly present on library-related topics. 

Nowadays, I often say that librarians and archivists are the super-hero guardians of both democracy, and culture. "  --Stephanie Adams
